    • A complete set of security policies and standards in line with the established information security policy framework
    • Procedures to implement and enforce the policies and standards
    • Roles and responsibilities
    • Staffing requirements
    • Security awareness and training
    • Enforcement practices
    • Investments in required security resources
  2. Collect information security requirements from IT tactical plans (PO1), data classification (PO2), technology standards (PO3), security and control policies (PO6), risk management (PO9), and external compliance requirements (ME3) for integration into the overall IT security plan.
  3. Translate the overall IT security plan into enterprise information security baselines for all major platforms and integrate it into the configuration baseline (DS9).
  4. Provide information security requirements and implementation advice to other processes, including the development of SLAs and OLAs (DS1 and DS2), automated solution requirements (AI1), application software (AI2), and IT infrastructure components (AI3).
  5. Communicate to all stakeholders and users in a timely and regular fashion on updates of the information security strategy, plans, policies and procedures.
